Tee Times For This Weekend’s Shell Houston Open

This Weekend the PGA Tour shifts its schedule from Florida to Texas as the season gears up for its first major in a few weeks. The first stop on the Texas tour will be the Shell Houston Open at the Redstone Golf Club in Humble, Texas. The tournament will feature some of the top golfers locally and around the world. Here are a look at some of the key tee times for Thursday and Friday.

Lee Westwood and Louis Oosthuzien (8am on tee 1 Thursday and 1pm on tee 10 Friday)- The Old Palm residents will look to use the Redstone course as a tune up to prepare for the Masters. Westwood’s best finish at this event was a tie for eighth in 2010 while Oosthuzien has been climbing up the World Rankings in recent weeks and is ranked sixth in the world going into the weekend.

Frenchmans Reserve (6)-1Rory Mcllroy, Dustin Johnson, Keegan Bradley (12:50pm on tee 1 Thursday and 7:50am on tee 10 Friday)- This star studded threesome features not only some of the best golfers in our area but some of the top golfers in the world. Keegan Bradley finished fourth in this event last year and will look at getting his first win of the season. The Tequesta resident is coming off a third place finish last week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and has three top five finishes in his last nine events. Rory Mcllroy (Bears Club) dropped to number two in the World Golf Ranking with Tiger’s win on Monday, but that is not phasing the Palm Beach Gardens resident. He took last week off but got plenty of practice at a local municipal course in Miami and is coming off a final round 65 at Doral. Dustin Johnson took last week off as well and is coming off a 12th place finish at Doral. The Loxahatchee River resident last played this event in 2009 and missed the cut.

Phil Mickelson, Hunter Mahan, Geoff Ogilvy (7:50am on tee 10 Thursday and 12:50 on tee 1 on Friday)- This group puts the last two winners of this tournament together. While none of the three are local residents, Mahan is the defending champion and Mickelson won in 2011. Both will try and improve off their finishes at The Arnold Palmer Invitational. Mahan finished in a tie for 21st, while Mickelson missed the cut.
